Hello from Lawton, Oklahoma :)

Happened to come across this site by chance looking for some windshield/sissy bar options for the 2009 V-Star 950 I recently bought and glad I found it . Been riding bikes since I was 17, with most of my previous bikes being crotch rockets and sports bikes. This would be my first cruiser, and with a lag of over 12 years since my last bike, it sure was quite a difference going to a Cruiser. Looking forward to the camaraderie and hope to see many of you on the road .

I know you guys like seeing pictures of the rides, so here's a couple I have at the moment - been too busy enjoying the ride to take any pictures.

Couple of days after I bought it - had 19 miles on it when I got it:

A leather carry bag? I know my Strat is bigger than a 950, but I didn't know a 950 would fit in a carry bag. Is that like a European shoulder bag?

Close - ya never know when you run out of fuel and need to carry it to the next gas station .

Probably the verbage was wrong - but I was referring to the leather bag that attaches to the sissy bar and rests on the luggage rack rather than going conventional saddle bags. Trying to keep with the bikes sleek lines rather than make it into a touring (while still being able to carry a few things)

LOL! Have been looking at bags myself. Want to do some over night trips with the bike and wanting a nice bag to affix to the sissy bar and luggage rack.

That's exactly what my plans were. Most of the guys I ride with have touring bikes and it would be nice to make overnight camping trips and be able to carry a few things without adding a lot of bulk

Thanks . I'll do my best to post as often as I can. My other hobby takes up just as much time and resource - Jeeping . Need to get a sissy bar and luggage rack first. Hopefully soon - bike accessories are more expensive than Jeep parts
